Why do people care oh so much what other people think? Why do we succumb to things like embarrassment? Why should we care what others think? Why should we be oh so upset that we do things differently than someone else and they think its weird? And why should we think that someone's differences are worth making them embarrassed? I'm not embarrassed that I wrote this. Perhaps I should be; a starting high school running back shouldn't writing on his own; he should be 'getting some' or whatever we are supposed to do. But I'm not embarrassed. I'm not embarrassed I just wrote this in a totally cliche manner. I'm not embarrassed that this short piece will never ever be noticed by anyone; that it will never be seen by anyone besides me, and perhaps never by me again. I'm not embarrassed that I'm Catholic. I'm not embarrassed that I'm 15. I'm not embarrassed that I'm lonely, but I'm not embarrassed that I don't search for friendship. I know that any friend worth having will show obvious friendship, and I'm not embarrassed I know this. I'm not embarrassed that I'm love video games. I'm not embarrassed that I love books. I'm not embarrassed that I love my family and those I hold close, those true friends. I'm not embarrassed that I listen to Owl City. I'm not embarrassed that I love Owl City. I'm not embarrassed that I thoroughly enjoy the TV show Avatar. I'm not embarrassed that I thoroughly enjoyed the movie Avatar. I'm not embarrassed that I prefer female voices to male in music. I'm not embarrassed that I'm half black. I'm not embarrassed that I do well in school, but I'm not embarrassed when I get a worse grade. I'm not embarrassed that I'm sentimental. I'm not embarrassed that I cry sometimes. I'm not embarrassed that I hate company, but love friends. I'm not embarrassed that I love cars. I'm not embarrassed about my choice of clothing. I'm not embarrassed that no one here wears what I do. I'm not embarrassed that people think I'm weird. I'm not embarrassed that I look people in the eye. I'm not embarrassed that I just sit sometimes. I'm not embarrassed that I just stand sometimes. I'm not embarrassed that I get it. I'm not embarrassed that I've never had a alcohol. I'm not embarrassed I've never been to a party. I'm not embarrassed that I've never seen a girl naked in any way. I'm not embarrassed that I tell those who ask the answer. I'm not embarrassed that I tell what I think. I'm not embarrassed that I only have 338 friends on Facebook. I'm not embarrassed that I daily check the library catalogue. I'm not embarrassed that I like electronics. I'm not embarrassed that I wrote this. I'm not embarrassed that you read this. And I'm not embarrassed that I'm not embarrassed.
